Tholos tomb at Tzanata 'saved' by specific funding awarded to the Directorate for the Restoration of Ancient Monuments by the Ionian Regional Council.

Plane trees in Tzanata plateia seem to have been saved, now going green (with leaves).

EU lawmakers OK virus pass, boosting summer travel hopes

European Union lawmakers on Wednesday endorsed a new travel certificate that will allow people to move between European countries without having to quarantine or undergo extra coronavirus tests, paving the way for the pass to start in time for summer.

The widely awaited certificate is aimed at saving Europe’s travel industry and prime tourist sites from another disastrous vacation season.

The vote must still be rubber-stamped by EU nations, but that’s likely a formality.

Greece to Further Ease Coronavirus Restrictions

Greece will ease its existing coronavirus restrictions on Saturday, Greek Minister for Civil Protection Nikos Chardalias announced on Wednesday.

Since the country reopened after its six-month lockdown in May, there has been a nightly curfew running from 12:00 AM until 5:30 AM.

Starting Saturday, June 12, the nightly curfew will be moved to 1:30AM.

The curfew will end entirely on July 1, and nightclubs, which remained closed, will likely reopen on the same date.

Since Greece’s lockdown ended, bars, restaurants, and cafes with outdoor seating have been open for business — but without music.

Music will return, however, on Saturday, according to the latest safety measures.

According to the latest easing of Greece’s coronavirus measures, which were approved by a panel of epidemiologists, Private tutoring schools, or “frontistiria,” will open their doors again on Saturday.
